On June 4, 2018, Microsoft officially announced its acquisition of GitHub for $ 7.5 billion. Rumors about it had come a while ago.
After Microsoft officially announced this, some people panicked and wanted to leave GitHub. Other sites have also advertised themselves. But in the end it was just lightning. Meanwhile, Microsoft has more plans on GitHub. It can be PowerToys or Winget. In addition, with the help of users, many issues were reported and resolved.
Although Microsoft paid more than the value of GitHub at the time, it was certainly not a bad buy.
